JANUARY: "The situation that Hearst found herself in was exciting. She had a boring life, she was a child of privilege, all of a sudden she's in with a bunch of charismatic thugs, and she enjoyed it. The situation here, for this kid, looks to me to be a lot more fun than what he had under his 'old' parents. He didn't have to go to school, he could run around and do whatever he wanted...And I think, when it all comes down, what's gonna happen is, there was an element here that this kid liked about his circumstances". - Dr. Bill O'Reilly, O'Reilly Factor, 1/15/07

FEBRUARY:“Look, Al Qaeda, they could bring a nuke into this country and kill a hundred thousand people with a well-placed nuke somewhere, OK? We would recover from that. It would be a terrible tragedy but the teachers unions in this country can destroy a generation...Well, they are destroying a generation. They’re MUCH more dangerous. You know, we worry about Al Qaeda, and we should, but at the same time, let’s not let the teachers’ unions escape.” - Neal Boortz, Hannity & Colmes, 2/20/07

MARCH: "Congress doesn't have any legitimate oversight responsibility on the White House." Tony Snow, White House spokesman, on Congressional probes into the firing of eight U.S. attorneys, Fox & Friends, 3/22/07
